You could always set the style display: none to it...it wouldn't actually "clear" the iframe, but it would hide it from view.
document.getElementById(iframe).style.display = none; should do the trick...
Past that, loading the iframe with a blank document would be about the only way to "clear" it out.

Here's another possibility:
If "windowRef" is a reference to the window object of the frame you want
to close, then
should do it.

so if I have
how do I get the reference to the window object of that iframe in order to clear it with the "open/close" sequence?

First, give the iframe a name attribute instead of the id:
x = window.frames["iframetest"];
(Or in IE just like this: x = iframetest)
Then you can do like theDude suggests:
But this more simple method also works:
x.document.body.innerHTML = "";
These solutions have been tested in Firefox 1.5 and Internet Explorer 6.
